9:01 am
russian air bombs hit homs. from burkas so citizenship rights of muslims. we look at the issues dominating canada's election. now to a story all-too familiar. young palestinians shot and killed, accused of random stabbing attacks, one repeated at least three times on saturday. two in hebron, the second holiest city in judaism. look at the video, you see a jewish settler brandishing a gun, shooting a palestinian teenager who allegedly tried to stab him. a man was killed.
9:02 am
not long after an a palestinian woman killed for stabbing a police woman in japan. mike hanna is in west jerusalem, first to hoda abdel-hamid in the occupied west lang. hoda, the violent situations continuing, hebron the focal point. >> absolutely. as you said, two palestinians were killed today. two different incidents. in one of them a video showing a palestinian - i think he's 18 years old, laying on the ground. there's a jewish settler who is holding a gun when the israeli soldiers arrived. he is pushed to the sides. while the palestinian man has been laying on the ground. we cannot see evidence of what
9:03 am
exactly led to the shooting, whether it was random or whether, as some say, the young man had a knife in his hand. it's not clear from the video i have seen. then there was a second incident, according to the statement from the israeli army, a woman tried to stab female israeli border police. the border police were wounded, the palestinian woman was shot. that rose further tensions in a city that is very tense. even under normal circumstances, when there is not so much tension. all that remains at a certain level of tension, from what we understood later on, shops closed down, the city emteed, and there has been some sort of confrontations between protesters and israeli soldiers
9:04 am
there. >> thank you. hoda abdel-hamid in bethlehem. let's look at the third attack, which happened in occupied east jerusalem. a palestinian 16-year-old was shot at a settlement there. the old city has been at the heard of renewed clashes which started on october 1st. mike hanna is in west jerusalem. we seem to see the increasing use of bullets trying to counter the use of knives. >> since of the wave of knife attacks began. many of those carrying out the attacks have been shot on the screen. three incidents, three dead bodies, the incident in east jerusalem was in the settlement. this directly adjoins the
9:05 am
neighbourhood of an area which is one of the most heavily blockaded cordoned off neighbourhoods, and is the focal point of israel's coordinated offs areas. the boy that alleged lid carried out the attack. somehow managed to get out and gain access to a heavily guarded settlement where he was stopped by a police patrol, asked for identity. the police say he took out a knife and attempted to stap them. and he shot them dead. questions are asked about the effective licence of the israeli system of closure we seem to be witnessing the re-engagement of the international community, john kerry speaking to mahmoud abbas
9:06 am
and binyamin netanyahu. >> yes, indeed. there appears to be a renewed attempt for some kind of international participation. the office said that binyamin netanyahu would meet the secretary of state on wednesday. net was scheduled to meet angela merkel. the meeting to take place on the sidelines. john kerry will then visit the region of what they say is an appropriate time. there are movements afoot to get a diplomatic series or initiative going. it is insisting that the core
9:07 am
issue is where diplomacy needs to be focused and control over the city and the al-aqsa compound, palestinians insisting that israel must plain what it means when it says it wants to maintain the status quo over the system of arrangement giving way to the al-aqsa compound. >> we'll look at the u.n. emergency meeting that took place yesterday, friday, to consider the situation. kristen saloomey was following that in new york. >> there was a briefing from the general who blamed both sides for making reckless statements, saying he welcomed comments to the al-aqsa mosque compound,

9:09 am
>> we condemn in the strongest possible terms, violence directed against innocent people. and believe that israel has a right to maintain basic law and order and protect its citizens from knife attacks. and violence on the streets. we also believe that it's important for both prime minister binyamin netanyahu, and israeli elected officials, and president mahmoud abbas and others in position of power to try to tamp down a rhetoric that may feed violence. a palestinian am door door
9:10 am
and official - ignited and will protect themselves by any means possible. >> there's an attempt by a group in government, a terrorist group in israel, the settler movement in control of the israeli government, and by the way, in the last few weeks, they have took control of the the entire israeli society, and they have a plan, to depopulate jerusalem, and the vast majority, to colonize it, and to annex the lands. they don't burn people, because they know the names or places of these people, no. it is to terrorize them. all are ignited and we will resist. i assure you that every palestinian is united and i assure you that the palestinian

9:17 am
prompted widespread anger with the government. three of 12 suspects held in custody appeared in court on friday. >> former opposition member of parliament said last week's attack in ankara highlighted deep divisions inside turkey i think if people showed up at the protest site today, what they would see is a mistrust of the government. for example, i went through not a police check to the main square, but a volunteer citizens initiative for a check. that is, there's such a distrust of the turkish government and the police that citizens seem to be taking matters into their own hand. turkey continues to be a polarised county, and the ruling akp has a lot of support. the callousness shown by supporters of the akp seem to lead to the reaction i'm
9:18 am
witnessing in ankara that people seem secure that the police was not there and security was provided by the volunteers, and it's sad to see the citizens, these days, tend to trust civilian initiatives more than the police that is responsible for providing safety and security of their own citizens. >> egyptians living abroad have begun to vote in the first parliamentary election since mohamed mursi was deposed in 2013. voters can cast ballots at 139 diplomatic missions across the world. the election starts on sunday and will conclude in december. egyptians in libya, syria and yemen will not be able to vote because of security concerns. there's a lot more to come. including tough times for nepal's earthquake providers. food relief is not coming their

of the protest says the academy condemns the attack and murder of any writer or artist anywhere. the academy is committed to the core secular valuation, enshrined in india's constitution, and the principle of right to life of all. the protest is about more than freedom of expression. it's an indictment of the ruling party, and a failure to rein in extreme hindu groups. some analysts say the prime minister's leadership is being unfairly questioned for a problem the governments previous struggled to deal with. >> india loves banning things, it's nothing to do with power. we are not comfortable with freedom of expression. we decide what to eat or wear or the books you read. indians are comfortable with the whole idea of clamping down on freedom of expression.
